Crazy Good e-Book Bargains

Recommended Posts

From this morning's perusal:

 

Olympia Provisions: Cured Meats and Tales from an American Charcuterie Kindle Edition $1.99US

This book has charcuterie info/recipes as well as recipes/dishes from the Portland, Oregon, "Olympia Provisions" restaurants.

The "Look Inside" features shows a list of the recipes included in the book.

 

edited to add that I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book: 500 Easy Recipes for Every Machine, Both Stovetop and Electric for $2.99 US 

 

By Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, whom you may know from some of their other books - they are fairly prolific writers. And overall, it's not a bad book if you have an Instant Pot and are looking for some suggestions and/or guidance. It says 500 recipes, but some are slight variations on earlier ones. 

 

Edited to add: This is on the Amazon US site and I'm a Prime member.

A couple of books geared toward Japanese cooking on the Amazon US site and I'm a Prime member:

 

Japanese Hot Pots: Comforting One Pot Meals for $1.99 US 

 

Ramen at Home: The Easy Japanese Cookbook for Classic Ramen and Bold New Flavors for $1.99 US 

 

I can't evaluate them really except to say that they both seem to get a lot of good reviews. :)

Is that pricing for Prime members?

I see those prices whether I am logged in (as a US Prime member) or on a different browser where I've never logged into Amazon so I assume those prices are for all US customers.

Hmm.  I don't see the cheap price for Bangkok book but I do see it for the other one, which is why I asked.  Bit of a bummer as I would have liked the Bangkok one.

I tried a couple of different browsers and Bangkok was priced at over $30 for the Kindle version at all of them.  I did check the other book again, and it directs me to Amazon.ca where I can buy that one for $2.99. The Bangkok one is not offered on .ca.

That's so frustrating!

Pichet Ong's book The Sweet Spot is currently $1.99. US Prime.

 Even for Prime customers in Canada it’s $18.99. Ouch.

Cenk Sonmeszoy's The Artful Baker is $2.99 for Kindle (US Prime). I've enjoyed baking from this book tremendously, and find his recipes clearly written and easy to follow.

 OK so baking books rarely inspire me.  I bake because I challenged myself to get over my fear of baking. This book is drawing me in.  Vanilla Bean Meltaways,  Danish butter cookies (called House Cookies here), and I am only just getting started. A disdain for chocolate chips in favour of real chocolate....  

 

Yes!   Many thanks for this link.
